      EVENT DETAILS
      Dakota's Challenge: THE LAS VEGAS EXPERIENCE!

      Rob Turek, voted Cleveland's Best Bartender by two local publications, will be hosting a fundraiser to kick off the evening to raise money for his son, Dakota Turek. Dakota, who goes by the nickname "Cody," suffers from a rare seizure disorder of the brain, called Landau-Kleffner Syndrome.

      The seizures he experiences actually take place in the left side of his brain while he sleeps. These seizures short circuit his cognitive abilities and it has destroyed his language ability, leaving him with no speech and very limited comprehension. Cody has endured two brain surgeries since 2006 and as a symptom of the LKS, he has also developed Autism. As a result, and to control physical seizures (bodily), Cody takes more then 10 different pills a day!

      Having exhausted surgical options, Cody is still in need of speech, physical, and occupational therapies, particularly as he approaches his puberty years. There is a good chance that he may outgrow the seizure activity, and if so, recovery will require much extended therapy.

      So in efforts to raise money for Cody's ongoing therapy we have put together an amazing night of fun and activities just for you and have even flown in 3 of the World's Best Flair Bartenders from Las Vegas!
